This is an 8* on SAN DIEGO

The Padres made a nice “recovery” Friday night by shutting out Arizona 3-0. It was a good spot for them after an off-day on Thursday. They’d previously lost four of five including two straight to the Dodgers, the last one coming in heartbreaking fashion as a runner was thrown out at the plate to end the game. The Padres are now 4-1 this year vs. the struggling Diamondbacks, who have the worst run differential so far in the National League. Arizona had picked up a couple surprise wins over Houston earlier in the week, but given their lack of hitting (2.8 runs/game on the road), it was only a matter of time before they cooled back down. Tonight they’ve got to face Chris Paddack, who has allowed just five runs across three starts so far. The first of those was six shutout innings vs. Arizona. The Diamondbacks go with Merrill Kelly, who took a no-hitter into the 7th inning against Texas on 7/28. But then he gave up two home runs to the Dodgers in a 3-0 loss last time out. The Padres homered three times (also solo shots) yesterday, so look out for the long ball. Play on SAN DIEGO
